Spin launches Essex e-cargo bike trails

13 August 2021/Categories: CILT, Industry News, Active Travel & Travel Planning, Net-Zero


Micromobility company Spin is launching two new e-cargo bike trials in Essex. 

 

Working with a new local community-based initiative, the Colchester E-Cargo Bike Delivery Project, Spin is trialling an e-cargo bike delivery service to replace and recharge drained e-scooter batteries.

 

Through the initial three-month trial, the Colchester E-Cargo Bike Delivery Project will replace approximately 20-30 low charged batteries a day across Colchester and take them to be charged at various points across the town, while they are running deliveries for other customers with four e-cargo bikes. 

 

With this trial, Spin aims to reduce the use of its vans on the road to help mitigate congestion in the local area.

 

Spin is also introducing a trail in Chelmsford, of what it claims is the UK’s first custom-made, ultra-lightweight vehicle for e-scooter operators, the EAV 2Charge. 

 

The company says the EAV 2Charge will provide greener logistics for e-scooter distribution and battery exchanges.

 

Steve Pyer, UK Country Manager at Spin, said: “Combating climate change is the defining challenge of our time and through our network of partners, including like-minded UK innovators and local businesses, we aim to transform how we operate the logistics side of our business.

 

“E-cargo bikes have the potential to deliver e-scooters faster, cut congestion and improve road safety in urban areas when compared to vans.”
